Website tracking California's 'Gender Insanity'

Picture this … your 7-year-old daughter comes home from school in tears, explaining she’s afraid to go to the bathroom at school because a boy comes in while she’s there. Outraged, you call the school to demand an explanation. You’re told that your daughter is telling the truth, but because the boy says he wants to be a girl, officials’ hands are tied.
“It’s the law.”
According to the Pacific Justice Institute, this and many other scenarios may become reality if two new far-reaching “gender identity” bills pass the California Legislature.
PJI has launched a new site, GenderInsanity.com, to bring attention to Senate Bill 323 and Assembly Bill 1266 – two bills which push an activist gender-identity agenda.
SB 323 was introduced in the California Legislature by Sen. Ricadro Lara, D-Long Beach, in mid February. The legislation would eliminate key tax exemptions for the Boy Scouts of America if the organization were to not accept “gender identity” and homosexuality.
But PJI notes that the threat of loss of tax exemption isn’t just posed to the Boy Scouts of America, but would directly affect numerous youth organizations including 4-H, Little League and the Special Olympics.
PJI attorneys interpreted the legislation to require potentially all youth sports in California to allow children of any gender to participate in any sports team or activity in order to remain tax-exempt as an organization.
‘Moreover, SB 323 would negatively affect at least one area of tax exemptions for private religious schools and higher education, and could potentially have a highly coercive effect on these institutions,” the site notes.
Just days after SB 323 was introduced, AB 1266 was introduced into the California State Assembly by Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco. The legislation requires that elementary, middle and high school students be allowed to fully participate on sports teams of the opposite sex, and access opposite sex bathrooms, locker rooms, and other “facilities,” based on the student’s chosen “gender-identity.”
PJI calls the bill radical and believes that it will erupt in controversy once more parents become aware of it.
“This bill seeks to impose radical ‘gender identity’ mandates on K-12 public schools to a degree that most parents would find shocking,” reads a PJI statement.
“While this legislation has been largely underreported to date, we fully expect it will spark a national controversy in the next few weeks,” a release from PJI stated.
The coalition, which includes scoutmasters and Eagle Scouts, vows to “keep sex and politics out of Scouting” through rallies, petitions and appearances at Boy Scouts of America meetings ahead of the National Council’s vote in May.
The new coalition says its members “affirm Scouting’s timeless values and will work to keep open homosexuality out of the Boy Scouts.”
It wants to “influence the resolution committee, the BSA voting delegates and the general public regarding the legal, social, political and financial implications of changing the membership policy.”
WND previously also has reported on the radical moves California lawmakers already have adopted, including SB 48, who requires positive portrayals of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons in class.
